Shooting board

I cobbled together this shooting board a few weeks ago and finally screwed down the fence and used it today. It's an amalgamation (bastardization) of plans from Chris Schwarz and Scott Wynn.

The base is 3/4" birch plywood. The top is two layers of 3/16" hardboard. The fence and hook are chunks of cherry from the land.

I slopped some linseed oil on. The hardboard soaked the oil up into streaks and would have taken a gallon to fix.

The fence is attached with machine screws into threaded holes and had a strip of sandpaper glued to the bottom (oops, not on the bottom yet).

It seems to work, although I haven't tested for accuracy.
